What were the results of the project, and are there any statistics or metrics you can share?
The app was delivered successfully, and has been live on the iTunes App Store since November.
When working with them, was there anything unique or special about them compared to other companies with which you may have worked?
I’m very happy with their performance. You usually compromise on two things when you outsource a project. The first is quality, but I found Devodrome’s designers and developers to be some of the best I’ve worked with. I’m not sure I could have gotten a better quality app if I had decided to go with Australian developers. The second is communication, but again Devodrome defied the stereotypes and was very responsive to my feedback and comments.
Looking back on the project, is there any area that they could improve or you would do differently?
This is just a suggestion, but I would recommend they set up regular video conferences with their remote clients. In my experience, it provides a great way to meet the team and build rapport, which is often absent in geo-located projects. However, we never made this a requirement of the engagement, and I still feel that the communication between us was strong.
